It doesn't matter where we go, our car gets a lot of attention and we love it! Tonight we were at Verizon Wireless in Ozark and we were approached by a man coming out of Subway to look at the car. He said his granddaughter told him there was a Tesla in the parking lot. He had never seen one up close and was delighted that we took the time to speak with him. After several minutes of conversation, his granddaughter came out and was just giggly at seeing a Tesla. We had already asked her grandfather if she could have a ride and he said, "Really? Absolutely!"
I asked her if she wanted to go for a ride and she looked at her grandfather in disbelief.
"OMG! YES!!!" and off we went! Tom stayed behind watching me on his Tesla app. Her grandfather was thrilled to "see" where we were.
She was so tickled and was taking pictures and sharing them with her friends on social media. I loved taking her for a ride ... and she loved her ride!
I think we may have to hire a photographer! LOL ... we are often so busy talking with people who are curious about Tesla that I forget to take pictures. So, here are the few I managed to take today at the Headland Festival.
So, it came to my attention that people we meet don't always know where car shows are in the Wiregrass. Being one who cannot just sit back and relax, I started a Facebook page called "Wiregrass Car Shows" (see red and black logo to the right). So, if you are a car show sponsor or one who loves to share car show information, please like our new page and share, share, share!!

It all started on Friday when we participated in the Ft. Rucker Oktoberfest. Sporting temps of 95+ and high humidity, the day was long and hot! But, we wouldn't have missed it! The people were amazing and we spent 8+ hours talking about our Tesla and answering questions. We were so exhausted when we returned home that we made the decision to skip the next day's car show at PorktoberQue Fest at the Dothan. But, when we woke up the next day there was no way we wanted to miss it! So, two shows in two days was exhausting, but exhilarating!
The next car show was at the Houston County Farm Center and though there was a breeze, it was still hot. But even the heat didn't stop people from rapid firing questions about our Tesla. We are always surprised at the number of people who surround our car and their interest. But, we love it and can't wait for the next show at Landmark Park on October 7 (flyer).
I have finally realized what it takes to survive in today's chaotic world. Simplify.
